After a successful police operation on Tuesday, May 3, three Ukrainians and two Slovaks were charged with human trafficking; the policewoman was accused of abuse of powers and of unauthorised manipulation of personal data. The Ukrainians and one of the Slovaks were also charged with legalising income from criminal activities committed by an organised group. The group had been active since January 2009 and earned at least €216,000 through its illegal activities, the police said.
